election. paul rieckhoff, executive director and founder of the iraq and afghanistan veterans of america. from 2003 to 2004 he served as army first lieutenant in iraq. let me start with michael about the cost figures. i have to call it the bs that was sold. this war was going to be paid for by cheap gas. cheap gasoline. somehow were they just going to open up the pipeline from iraq over to america? we get all that stuff? we get first dibs? we got nothing of the kind. let's start with the lives. 190,000 dead people. >> if you remember famously general eric shinseki said we would need more troops to do this and he was dismissed. remember, paul wolf wits did actually make the claim that iraqi oil revenues would be able to pay for this conflict. and not only would the selling the war point and the costs of the war, you know, in your last segment you made this great point about the media. it's even -- you can go even further than that. the media was complicit. the media took an active role in selling this war. they met with wolfowitz. there was one famous meeting where you had these t

paul who said we need a brand new political party. a new gop. the thing is this debate will be happening over the next couple years and we won't find out where the republican party is for a while. democrats were just in this position after losing the 2004 election. they had very big debates, particularly over the iraq war in 2005, 2006. then everything was settled. we'll see where republicans are come 2015 and 2016. >> mark murray, good to see you. let's bring in radio talk show host michael smerconish who is also with msnbc and jonathan from american cross roads. thank you for being with me. jonathan, let me start with you. this is what rnc chair reince priebus said. >> focus groups describe our party as narrow minded, out of touch and, quote, stuffy old men. the perception that we're the party of the rich, unfortunately continues to grow. that's frustrating. because we care about every voter. >> what does this plan do? what does plan do to change those perceptions at least? >> i think it is a very, very good start. a very good framework of what needs to be changed tactically

reform and on tuesday rand paul of kentucky gave a speech to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce in which he sold his proposal for immigration reform by insisting that latinos are natural republicans. >> republicans have been losing both the respect and votes of a group of people who already identify with people of our beliefs, family, and conservative values. hispanics should be a natural and sizable part of the republican base. but they are steadily drifting away from the gop in each election. this says more about republicans than i want does about hispanics. defense of the unborn, defense of traditional marriage are republican issues that should resonate with latinos but have been obscured by the perception that republicans are hostile to immigrants. >>> so the rand paul calculation there is interesting because i think everybody thinks about rand paul as a possible 2016 candidate. there's this question was he seeing an opportunity get to the right of where the establishment is because that's where the space is much as mitt romney got to the right of rick perry back in the primary

party? and where do they wind up? >> i can imagine there's a republican rand paul that would be for gay marriage before 2016, but not many mainstream republicans coming out. i think we're still a few years away from that. it's demographic. a lot of old folks in the republican party that comprise the worker bee base of the gop,thy do the phone calls, they do the envelopes. they are culturally very conservative. very traditional and they're not going to come around to gay marriage at least not in the very near future it may happen down the road, i think you're going to find serious puckbash among the conservative base of the party. who by the way provide a lot of votes to republicans. on this issue. keep in mind, a lot of republicans vote for the party because of the cultural issues, not the fiscal issues. it's not because of carried interest and capital gains tax breaks they vote for the gop. >> carried interest. >> now we get to talk about carried interest. >> jonathan makes a good point. nbc/"wall street journal" poll, i believe in december 2012, they asked do you support same-sex

. they're going to go with it, they're going to make it work. and for paul ryan to be fighting that battle all over again -- after it was sort of was at the core of the 2012 election, some might argue it's what helped the president win re-election. they're going to argue that again? why? and the president will, will fight to defend medicare. he will fight to defend medicaid. because they're crucial to obama care. now james said i don't know why he's cutting medicare. there are going to be some strategic cuts around the borders. but the president is not going to give up on medicare and he's not going to give up on medicaid. and that was really what the 2012 election in terms of domestic policy was really all about. >> james, is this terrible strategy for the republican party in the long-term? >> i cannot believe that it's four and a half months after the election and they haven't sort of public strategic debate among each other and they're all sort of out there attacking each other. i've been around politics for a long time and a lot of people on this panel, i've been through a lot o

the argument for invading in the first place, that was also advanced this week by paul wolfowits' old boss, donald rumsfeld. he tweeted on the morning of the anniversary, quote, ten years ago began the long, difficult work of liberating iraqis, all who played a role in history, deserve our respect and appreciation. yes, remember that war of iraqi liberation that we were asked to sign up for as a country? you don't remember that? it's because that's not what they sold us. that's not what they told us that war was for. they're retroactively defining it that way. this is richard pearl, one of the neo cons pushing the discredited evidence of weapons of mass destruction and nuclear and biological weapons plans. he reemerged to share this bit of self-reflection. >> ten years later, nearly 5,000 american troops dead, thousands more with wounds, hundreds of thousands of iraqis dead or wounded. even though it has been ten years since the war was sold to the american public, the folks who did the selling, you know what, they did it all on tape, and the tape still exists. and now the people

" assessment of it. >> the same criticism has been labeled to the paul ryan budget, which uses as part of its calculation, defunding broadly, president obama's health care law. which i think, i think we probably can agree, is not likely to happen. if both sides are offering budget proposals that are nonviable. how do we get to a budget proposal that is viable, do you expect that to happen? >> well, i think it's important for our country that we do. and the thing that's, that i think is so important about paul ryan's budget is that it actually becomes a balanced situation. where you have a balanced budget. the democrat proposal -- never balances, not this year, not in ten years. never. and american families realize they have to live within their means, they can't spend money they don't have. they understand the concept of a balanced budget and i was back in wyoming last weekend, the people at home still believe that over half of all the money they send to washington is wasted. so the concerns are that these budgets that we see specifically the democrats' budget, it's more, it's ine
